To Mr Radley						Ravensworth Castle  Dec 11th.1741

Dear Sir 

      We wrote you the 8th past & therein Inclosed you the draughts of Chester & Hetherington’s Tacknotes, which we hope you have recd and at the same time we acquainted you that we intended to write to you in relation to the sale of the Derwentwater Woods. We have since recd yours with the Advertisement thereof wch will be incerted in our paper tomorrow so that we can say no more than that we will doe all we can to promote the Sale. The Termes of Bidding settled by the Attorney Gen[eral] we have not, so that please to send them at your leisure.

      We are sorry to hear of our miscarriage in Mr Algoods Replevin Causes & more particularly, for want of proper Drawing the presentments. This Affaire however we hope will not there rest, for if Mr Algood maintain his right we may give up all our pretentions to the Royalty’s in the Manor of Wark , as it will give everybody encouragement to Invade the right of the Hospital in other parts of the mannor.

      Sir Yours &c

      Walton & Boag
